Moon phase and lunation details

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter

Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1943" and ∠1944".

Cold Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2022 after 13 days on 8 December 2022 at 04:08.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

At 22:57 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 283 of Meeus index or 1236 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.47 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 20 minutes. It is 44 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 24 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 45 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠325.5°

The true anomaly is ∠325.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠344.3°.

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 14 November 2022 at 06:41 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 26 November 2022 at 01:30 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 368 956 km

The Moon is 368 956 km (229 259 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 826 km (225 450 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 22 November 2022 at 16:23 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 5 December 2022 at 12:39 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 12 November 2022 at 14:17 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.497°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-27.471° at the point of next southern standstill on 26 November 2022 at 08:28 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
